This could be worm infestation ? Thread worm ,spreds through contamination .but other worms may be there so see a doctor and get stool examined.If required some blood test may be done. Deworming may be by Albendazole 4oomg 1 tab at bed time may be repeated after 1 or 2 week. Take care of your diet and water intake.
